I had a Near Death Experience and came back to tell you about it!
Welcome to my newsletter, Tunnel Vision! I periodically share observations, musings, and tips—based on what I learned during and since my Near-Death Experience—on where we are in the Great Shift of the Ages, how the Shift is manifesting in our lives (basically: change, change, then more change!), and how to navigate the waves of change, rather than getting pulled under and dragged along the bottom kicking and screaming! (Been there; not pretty!) We need a different view of ourselves and each other, and we must remember Who We Really Are. The easiest way for us to navigate this great transition and transformation is to examine everything... what we think we know, what we believe, who we think we are, and how we act... and let go of everything that is no longer working for us, supporting us, or true. If we don't let those things go, the Universe has a way of coming along and ripping them out of our hands! (OUCH!) Letting go of judgments is a good first step. I hope you enjoy my musings in the current and archived issues.
In addition to writing my Tunnel Vision newsletter, I also have been invited since 2012 to submit articles for the annual Predictions issues of The Sedona Journal of Emergence. You can find them on my Sedona Journal Articles page, a sub-page of this one.

Overview of the Latest Issue
The writer Dorothy Parker once famously quipped, "What fresh hell is this?" Seems appropriate! The 12-month period February 2020 to February 2021 have been unprecedented, demonstrating that we are right smack in the middle of the "shake-up" phase of the Great Shift: a global pandemic that brought the world to its knees, an economic meltdown across the world, and, in the USA, TWO (count them, TWO) presidential impeachments, followed by a presidential inauguration.
The main article in the winter 2021 issue is, "The Shift Has Hit the Fan!" And if you don't think that's happened, you haven't paid attention. On top of everything else, we seem to be undergoing a zombie apocalypse, where the two "sides" live in two totally different realities and think the people on the other side are the zombies!''
WTH?? How did we come to a place where people in a single country can have such widely divergent beliefs about what's going on, what's true? Looking back over the years between the kickoff of the current huge transformational cycle—the Uranus/Pluto cycle, that started when the two planets were in conjunction in the mid-1960s—and now, just past the first major hit of the cycle, the Uranus/Pluto Square, is pretty illuminating!
First, we had the major shift in consciousness in the 1960s, then we had the enormous backlash against it in the mid-70s, then we had the new emphasis on greed and ostentatious displays of wealth in the 80s... and then the growth of the misinformation industry in the mid-90s. As people tried to find answers to why the opportunities to reach the American Dream had dried up, they fell into the hands of the misinformation merchants, who very quickly realized that misinformation could be quite lucrative... and it could also be weaponized.
And here we are, with the Great Divide of people living with wildly different beliefs, truths and realities. NOW WHAT do we do?
It all comes back to LOVE! Check it out here.
Companion articles include: "The Country is Going Through a Dark Night of the Soul" and "What Is Reality, Anyway?"
If you've been reading recent issues of Tunnel Vision, you know about how the Great Saturn/Pluto conjunction in early January 2020 "set up" the energies for the year and, as the rubber met the road, we were pushed to get the dead bodies out from under the rug in the living room (where we were not paying any attention to them, hoping they'd go away) and take a long look at all of our systems and institutions to identify what isn't serving the People. You also know that the USA is experiencing the return of Pluto to its position in the natal chart, pushing the country to collectively review its past and resolve and heal everything that hasn't been resolved and healed. We have that influence increasing until it is exact in 2022, then it will very slowly start to wane.
So the country really is undergoing a Dark Night of the Soul, being forced to look at who we are, who we want to be, what we've done and not done, and what we believe. A Dark Night of the Soul is never pleasant in our personal lives, and by extension, it isn't — and won't be — pleasant for an entire country. Maybe that's why we have such extremes in belief systems right now? Pluto moves things to extremes, so we can no longer hide behind subtleties.
So how do we get through all this?? Check out the latest issue here!
